Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Chinese plates, they sound most interesting.

Could you very kindly attach photos of them and one of the backs and I'll appraise and value them for you.

Attaching images is simple. Once you have the photos in your computer just click on the paperclip icon located just above the box where you are typing to me.

Many thanks and wait to hear,

PS. Meanwhile, please don't rate me until you get a full appraisal and a value from me. I mention this because you may get random prompts asking you to rate me before I've submitted an answer, ignore them, they are automatically generated by the site (it doesn't seem to be able to distinguish an answer from preparatory back and forth and information gathering) and don't come from me. Thanks, Robert
